Radical Muslims are trying to recruit kids to Islam with cold hard cash
The Muslim Students Association has organized the "Muslim Inter-Scholastic Tournament," which tests children in public schools on their ability to recite Muslim prayers. (The same prayers, taught in Madrasas, that foment hatred and violence against America).
All high school children are permitted to compete for the prize money, but female children who do not wear the headscarf are penalized. Non-Muslim girls who have objected to wearing the headscarf for the tournament, have been chastised and pressured by the tournament organizers for refusing. According to the Muslim Students Association, which was founded by the North American Islamic Trust, which owns hundreds of mosques in the U.S. and Canada, the girls must conform to Islam's sharia law dress codes, or they will be ineligible to vie for educational funds. (Please see MIST website for verification of this policy.)
According to research done by the Center for Security Policy:
"In the United States, two leading Saudi-backed organizations are the MSA and the Islamic Society of North America (the MSA's adult counterpart), both of which receive major funding, direction, and influence from Riyadh."
"In addition, there is overwhelming evidence that the MSA, far from being a benign student society, is an overtly political organization seeking to create a single Muslim voice on U.S. campuses—a voice espousing, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism, and expressing solidarity with militant Islamist ideologies."
